plantar fasciitis can really suck. Feels like you're stepping on a nail every step. 

Reality is that Becton needs to lose 40 pounds. It won't affect his power, will make him faster and will greatly decrease the stress on his joints.

I cannot take this any more.  Would you people PLEASE STOP BITCHING.  This is JUNE.  He is still working out and in all the class sessions.  The kid is a developing player.  Last year he received ZERO

With all the Resources available to him at the facility, I do blame the player. 

Meanwhile Wirfs was a gym rat that broke his college powerlifting records.  Bet his feet are fine.

Whoa, we're blaming a player and not the coaching staff?

Hmm.

Actually, I blame Gase.  Becton's injury situation began with the ridiculous decision to not start him because of a shoulder injury, but suit him up for a game last year.  Why do that with a talented rookie who has a potential 10-15 year career ahead of him?  You play it safe. If he is not healthy enough to start, he is not healthy enough to dress at all.  Then Becton's replacement was injured early in the  game , so Gase inserts an already injured Becton in the game and boom - he injures his shoulder.  Just horrendous.

Saleh said Mekhi Becton is dealing with a foot injury. That is why we haven't seen him at OTAs. #nyj

Of course he does. 

Luckily we have AVT who can play that position when Becton is hurt.

Excess meat and animal products can cause inflammation on the body (heme protein, Neu5Gc). Also, simple carbohydrates (soda, soft drinks, cakes, bread, cereals, wheat) will alter your glucose, insulin, your nervous system and other critical organs.

Simple carbs, such as table sugar, white bread, sugary drinks are refined, which means the natural minerals vitamins, and fiber content is removed. This makes simple carbs a source of quick energy but little nutritious value, which is why there are sometimes referred to as "empty calories.".Sugar. Sugar is the simplest form of carbohydrate. https://www.delightedcooking.com/what-are-simple-carbohydrates.htm

Becton, you have the obligation for yourself # 1, to prioritize your health. Secondly, as a professional athlete, you should have the commitment during the off season to stay in shape. If you want a longer and healthier life, star making changes. Ensure you are taking all necessary minerals such as magnesium and potassium. Get your D3 from the sun. Start eating greens and stay off the simple carbohydrates.

We as fans, are extremely excited to see a strong OL, but without your health, it is just a pipe dream for us long suffering fans. 

I wish you a speedy recovery and start changing your lifestyle.

If only Americans would listen to this advice, COVID would have been way less of a problem.

I’ve had it. It can tear which would require surgery. Mine wasn’t torn. Physical therapy took care of it. Dr also said to get custom Orthotics, which I got. They do help especially for high arches. I can’t speak to flat feet. 

Usually your arches will fall if you get it. The Orthotics will just redistribute  your weight on your foot so you don't  over work any parts but it really won't  prevent that. Might help it take a longer time for a reoccurance

Plantar fasciitis is most commonly caused by repetitive strain injury to the ligament of the sole of the foot. Such strain injury can be from excessive running or walking, inadequate foot gear, and jumping injury from landing.

It took me a year for the pain to go away, and not come back. It sucked.

I wasn't  implying this is career ending but to have it this close to the season is really bad news especially  since he plays the most important  role on the OL and we have a rookie QB

I didn't mean you did . My bad. It was just the way the thread was going and you happened to be the closest  click. One would think he had gout.

Yup

For a young overweight superstar have this kind of ailment is extremely and I underscore extremely ... disconcertingly ....he actually played less snaps last year than Darnold.

Embiid has a meniscus tear and is likely not going to make it through the playoffs. A great player on the bench is useless to the team. 

I’m talking about him actually become a top 10-20 player in his league like Embiid. 
 

Of course him being injured does nothing for the team but Becton is far from being great player…yet.

Not encouraging. He needs to drop 20 pounds.

can you imagine the food bill in the Becton home. They must go through a few hundred pounds of meat in a week. They'd be better off raising their own cattle.

Am I the only one not overly concerned? It’s the beginning of June fellas. I get he’s heavy and he needs to lose weight. But he also played really well at that size last year…

Played well but had trouble staying on the field. He needs to get in better shape. He had all offseason to do so and lose weight and yet here we are.

Very Concerning ... immature ? I want the best for this kid ... be a shame if he washes out due to lack of discipline.

Let's all just see how he handles this.

He’s 400 lbs, he’s going to be hurt all the time

just hope he can play through most of it and be in the field more than not, in his somewhat short career-7-8 years

the obvious reason to why Wirfs was the pick

There will be nothing foolish about it when Crowder ends up remaining a Jet, possibly thru 2022, but simply at a lower price. 

I think you know my comment was in re: him possibly being cut for $$ reasons.

I am good if he is retained, extended/cheaper.  I want Crowder on the 2021 Jets.

You planning on this being your meme-schtick for all of 2021 then?

Best part is he upvotes himself with post of the week

What kind of insecure person do you have to be to do this?

Becton is the Joel Embiid of the Jets. 

If he isn't available due to an injury a significant amount of time then he's a bust. Shoulda drafted the kid from Iowa.

Not saying you’re wrong.  How did you come up with 40lbs?  Did you do an obscure major on the BMI of dinosaurs in college?   The guy could be 420.  Gets down to 380 and everyone is telling him he looks marvelous.   I’m thinking minimum he needs to loose 120 and he would still be a giant.

You are a thread killer that add's nothing.  Really mean this - I love this board.  But the more you post the less I like it.  I'm all for someone with a different opinion but you're unbearable.  This place would be better off without you.

There's no way he's under 4 bills.

I knew what you were saying. Unfortunately, Embiid comes as a package. Great player for the limited minutes he plays. He can't play a full game, and misses games due to injury or planned rest. I don't want Becton to be the next Embiid. If Becton played at an Embiid level but had Embiid levels of missed playing time, I'll pass on that. I'm a Sixers fan, and I hope that the Sixers trade Embiid in the offseason for a haul. He is a giant eggshell. 

Needless to say, I am rooting for Becton to have a long, pain free career.

If Wirfs never proves he can play LT, then no, Wirfs would not have been the better pick.  Becton not staying healthy would be unfortunate (but I happen to think he'll prove the doubters wrong and play a full 17 games this year or at least 15-16), and I suppose you could argue that risk was built into his value based on his size.  No way he falls to 11 with his skillset if he wasn't as big as he is while still retaining 90+ % of his skillset.  

But when on the field Becton has proven he can play LT at a dominant level.  Quality LT's are hard to find and you generally have to use high picks to find one.  He was worth the risk.
